Happy Saturday! I hope you are having a fab weekend so far. So, Thursday night Bobby and I went to the Team in Training meeting in our area. We had already signed up, but we wanted to go meet our coach, etc. plus Bobby had not heard all the info, etc. I was a little bummed there were not that many people there. I was hoping for a big group to run with on Saturdays.
Anyway, the girl went through the whole thing and I think 4-5 other people signed up on the spot which was cool. I told them we had already signed up and we got a free gulf coast half marathon T-shirt for signing up for that race, and we got our official training tech shirts.
We also got a lot of info on fundraising, and these cute bracelets.
After the meeting we went to dinner and then to Barnes and Noble, and guess what I accidentally stumbled upon in the “new in paperback” section!
Do you see it? yay Tina!
I am really excited to get started. Bummer the next three weekends we won’t be here to run with everyone. We have 2 5k’s coming up and we will be out of town, but, they are starting off with 2-3 miles and we already have a bigger base than that, so it’s not like we will be missing much.
Also a huge THANK YOU to my anonymous donor from yesterday. Seriously EVERY little bit helps and means so much to me. So, whoever you are, we really, REALLY appreciate it! Remember, you can make a donation HERE on our team webpage.
We found out about our team’s honorary member, a little boy who was 3 when he was diagnosed with Leukemia. I figure, if he, at 3, can be brave enough and strong enough to go to chemotherapy, then I can get up and run a few miles, and try to raise some money to help fund research for people just like him. We can make a difference!
My next goal is to get our letters written so we can get them mailed out to friends and family. I am so excited!
QOTD: Have you ever thought about running with a charity? Have you ever done it? Did you have a good experience?
